Paper Smooches January Guest Designer Search

I really need to visit my lonely blog more often.  I really wish I could blog on my iPad, it would make things so much easier!  Anyway I came across a guest designer call today for Paper Smooches.  They are looking for a guest designer for January and I thought I would give it a try.  I recently got these adorable bee dies in the mail from PS and I made a really cute anniversary card with them.  I won't lie, I did get my inspiration from the incredibly talented Jennifer McGuire.  She is oozing with talent and I love to watch her videos!  In my house she is a celebrity....  Anyway on to the card.  I popped my tag up on an embossed panel of hearts and I really love how it turned out!
Those bees are so stinkin' cute!  I can see some hap-bee birthday cards in their future!
Have a great day!
I already am!

Well, after a little over 2 years I decided it was time to dust off my little old blog.  It's all thanks to my daughter Taylor.  She has developed a recent addiction to life planners.  With her recent purchase of an Erin Condren planner she has inadvertently entered the world of papercrafting.  She is sounding more and more like me every day.  She shows me cute Heidi Swapp stamps and adorable MAMBI stickers and she is surprised every time I say, "yeah I know that company".  It's so much fun sharing this world with her because up until now it was just me in my craft room.  Now she wants to "stamp" in her planner and have "craft time".  It's wonderful!

The other day she said, hey mom there is a design team call for Doodlebug Designs, I think you should enter.  I just about fell over.  I've been in love with Doodlebug Designs for years.  I love their bright colors, adorable die cuts and all the delicious glitter and embellishments.  Once again Taylor was surprised that I had heard of Doodlebug Designs.  I used to be on 3 design teams and I loved every minute of it but eventually life got busy and designing went by the wayside.  Now the kids are older and I have the time again.  I am very excited for this design team and I would love to win a spot on the team.  I never stopped creating and designing and have always been hopeful to once again join another design team.  I've missed blogging and this is the perfect chance to get back into it.

Here are a few projects that I am submitting with my applications.  So happy to have found this design team call in time!

Have a great day everyone!
